The event will be held on Saturday 15th October 2011 in the school hall at
the Christian Education Centre (DABCEC), Crawley, starting with refreshments
from 9.15am. The formal part of the day will commence at 10.00am and continue
until around 3.00pm, allowing a sufficient break for a packed lunch and a chat.
This year Paul Murray has agreed to join us from his hectic schedule as
professor in the Department of Theology and Religion at Durham University. The
event is entitled “Receiving Gifts for our Needs” and will be looking at
Receptive Ecumenism, a new ecumenical approach inspired by Ut Unum Sint and
which suggests that our primary ecumenical responsibility is to ask not “What do
the other traditions first need to learn from us?” but “What do we need to learn
from them?” – a challenge for us all!
Paul will also touch upon his
recent experiences as a member of the newly formed ARCIC III (Anglican-Roman
Catholic International Commission) which held its first meeting in Bose, Italy
in May this year.
As in previous years, we are again suggesting people
invite friends from their local churches with whom they work ecumenically, as
well as others from their own parish. (If they can help promote the event in
their parish/neighbourhood, they can use the enclosed poster and/or the text
overleaf for their newsletter).
The event will be in the school hall to
accommodate the anticipated numbers. The reply slip can either be posted, or
copied to email. Don’t forget to bring a packed lunch! There is no charge for
